Crockpot Chocolate Cake {Recipe}

If you’ve never made a cake in the crockpot, you are missing out! It’s so easy, and it tastes absolutely divine!

Here’s my favorite recipe for taking to pot-luck dinners and other places when I sign up for dessert:

1 Box Chocolate Cake Mix
1 Large Box Instant Chocolate Pudding
8 Ounces Sour Cream
4 Eggs
3/4 Cup Oil
1 Cup Water
1 Small Package Chocolate Chips

Mix all ingredients together thoroughly in a crockpot and cook: 3 – 4 hours on high or 6 – 8 hours on low.

The cake is best served warm with ice cream and hot fudge, but it’s absolutely not necessary. It’s great warm right out of the crockpot.

Also, I doubled this recipe for the first time on Thursday and used my large crockpot. It tasted great and fed lots of people. {The version above is still enough to feed my crew and then some!}

I wish I had thought to take a picture of it on Thursday. I promise to do that the next time I make it and put it in this post.

I have another version called the Crockpot Hot Fudge Cake that I make for very special occasions. It’s a bit more complicated, so I tend to make the one in this post more often. But, I’ll post it soon so you kitchenistas can try it out for yourselves. It’s even more heavenly than this one.

    I’ll have to remember this! We take food to church for lunch every week, and I know there would be some happy people if I made this. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing the recipe! 🙂

    What size crockpot do you use for this recipe (or what do you use when you double it)?

    Looks delish!
